I booked 2 rooms at the Marriott based on its proximity to a family event. Although parking is located at the hotel it is some distance from the primary entrance. The area is also poorly lighted and isolated...pretty intimidating for someone traveling alone.
We discovered after a couple of days that there are rear entrances from the parking lot which are not marked. We initially went into one back entrance but found the interior door locked. We found the correct entrance by following other guests.
Check in was smooth and easy and the hotel staff were friendly. I had booked double beds in both rooms. The rooms also contained a desk, desk chair and one arm chair. There was enough space in the room for an additional chair or table.
The rooms faced the inner court area which included a bar, restaurant and swimming pool. We could not see the pool from our rooms and did not smell the pool as noted in other reviews. However the noise from the bar area was particularly annoying late at night (after midnight) and did not stop until usually approx. 2AM.
One of my guests was diabetic and I requested a refrigerator for insulin storage on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd day however never received one during the length of my stay.
The internet access is $9.95 per day. I purchased one (1) day for a business meeting. I did complain upon checkout about not receiving the refrigerator and requested that they remove the 1 day internet charge as compensation. They did so without argument or resistance.
Overall, its a nice hotel with a conveniently located internal restaurant. I would recommend however if you are a light sleeper to get a room facing the hotel exterior. Also, don't expect to see that "on request" fridge and be aware of the internet usage charge (really should be complimentary at these rates).
